Construction Worker Killed On Site Of Las Vegas Casino

A construction worker has fallen to his death at the site of a high-rise casino project on the Las Vegas Strip.

A Clark County fire spokesman says the man fell about 55 feet and was dead when crews arrived at the Project CityCenter site about 9 a.m.

He's the fourth worker to die working on the $7 billion casino-hotel project being built by casino giant MGM Mirage.

Nevada OSHA is investigating.

Officials say the man had a safety harness, but it's not clear yet if it was attached to anything.

Authorities say the man was an ironworker about 45 years old.

His name wasn't released.
